How to Make Easy Apple Pie Bites
Step 1: Heat oven to 375°F and spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2: Separate the dough (there should be 8 rolls). Press each one into and up the sides of the muffin cups to form your pie crust. There will be one roll per cup, so you should have 8 cups total.
Step 3: Spoon about two generous tablespoons of the apple pie filling into each cinnamon roll.
Step 4: Bake for 15-18 minutes, until the rolls are slightly golden brown. Remove them from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes.
Step 5: Place a piece of parchment paper or a baking sheet under the wire rack to catch any drips, then take the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls and drizzle it over the top. Enjoy!
Tips & Tricks
- Feel free to substitute your favorite pie filling flavor in place of the apple. I love apple desserts for the fall, but blueberry, cherry, and peach pie filling would all be delicious too.
- For an easy way to add even more apple pie flavor, you can make a brown sugar and cinnamon crumb topping and sprinkle it over the apples just before baking.
- Chopped pecans or walnuts make a great addition to these yummy treats.
- Make delicious caramel apple bites by drizzling some salted caramel sauce over the cinnamon roll icing. You can also add whipped cream and a fresh apple slice just before serving. Top it off with some ground cinnamon and nutmeg for that apple pie spice flavor.
- When pressing the filling into the muffin cups, be sure to press down in the center to create extra space to hold the filling.
- If you want to make an even more mini version for a a party, you can make these in a mini muffin tin instead.
- You can also make these with crescent rolls. Just follow this this recipe for pumpkin pie crescent rolls but add the apple filling instead.
Place them in an airtight container and store at room temperature for 1-2 days or in the fridge for 3-4 days. You can also place them in a freezer bag or Ziplock bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
